Education Home Prerana - An Outstanding Model Ramkrishna Senior Citizens Children of Defence & PMF Intelligent Children
Prerana's Pratibha Poshak initiative aims to to help needy meritorious students is an outstanding example of support to need children who excel in their studies but are restricted in their pursuit of education due to inability of their parents to provide them adequate financial support. Prerana provides these students with financial assistance (for college fee, books etc.), other academic help including learning centers and personality development training

Methodology

To ensure that the needy students passing out of Std 10th are aware of Pratibha Poshak, they visit 250 government high schools in Bangalore, and explain their initiatives.

On receipt of hundreds of applications, to make sure that the donations reach only the truly deserving students, they visit applicants' homes and assess their economic condition in a very deliberate process.

Sponsors are mobilized and donation received are passed on to the students, to pay for the college fees. Students are connected to sponsor. Pratibha Poshak provides books to all students and monitor their academic progress.

The student so supported will need to continue to excel in his or her studies. Prerana tries to provide supplementary academic support in six learning centers in Bangalore, where students come every Sunday. Classes on spoken English and soft skills are conducted to help the students.

The assistance is continued till end of graduation if the student continues to show promise. Science students may enrol for coaching and free seats are provided by some institutes coordinated by Prerana.

Prerana Volunteers and staff together covered more than 5000 villages, carried out Nurture Merit Tests in 11 centres of 9 districts and So far has assisted 11,700 students with a sum of Rs. 4.29 crore.
